For some while our customers have been asking us to produce a web based package to manage their coach operations round the clock and from any location. The technologies required to deliver a truly robust and easy to manage solution have been very slow in coming forward. Recent developments have finally allowed us to bring to market a truly exciting, innovative and industrial strength solution.
We're calling it PHCloud ...
PHCloud is a natural product progression for our software design team and is freshly built from the ground up using our new and extremely capable Emerald Technology Framework. It is the first of an entirely new breed of products for the Coach Tourism Industry and sets our trajectory for years to come.
Over the coming months and years we will be adding layers of features and benefits. As new and exciting software services become available from third-party providers, PHCloud is perfectly poised to consume them and provide a truly connected business environment for the future.
Using PHCloud enables coach operators and their teams to access their core operational data securely - and from anywhere - using office based computers, tablet devices and even smartphones. Operators can decide which modules and features they wish to use to suit their budgets and needs. With no other up-front costs or technology spend other than their preferred web browsing devices, PHCloud is the ideal solution for businesses on the move.
PHCloud is entirely hosted on our own industrial strength servers in major data-centres right on the internet backbone, to provide maximum performance and resilience. For a supplement, corporate clients can elect to have their data stored on the Microsoft Azure platform.
When you first log into PHCloud it is clear this in not just another web application - the whole application looks and feels like a full blown desktop application - but on your favourite web broswer. Our engineers and developers have pushed the bounds of technology to bring you a truly connected, fast and extremely agile experience. This is immediately apparent from the intelligent controls and almost instant journey visualisation using Here Maps, the familar technolgy behind 80% of in-vehicle navigation systems used in Europe and the USA.
A liberating feature of PHCloud is the ability to run multipe tasks and switch with ease between them. For example, while working on a booking you could switch to taking a quotation request - then flip back into the booking and continue where you left off. The configurable dashboard keeps you updated on your current workflows and shows a number of key performance indicators at a glance.
The PHCloud quotations system is simple, intuitive, crisp and clean. It allows existing clients to be recalled, new ones added or simply use the 'Quick Quote' option for guest customers. Regular journeys can be reselected or new ones added. As journey legs and waypoints are added the complete route is visualised in the mapping pane.
Quotes can easily be recalled and converted to bookings at the click of a button and additional requirements can be added with ease. Once complete the booking confirmation or invoice can be emailed direct to your customer.
The Diary is the centre point of PHCloud, bringing together all the job legs for a single day or range of days into a clever interactive scheduler control. In addition to showing the days work in different views, the control also allows vehicles and drivers to be scheduled to the individual jobs. This makes allocations easy and clear, showing at a glance which resources are available and allowing work to be rescheduled as required. Worktickets, schedules and rosters can be printed or emailed directly from the system and we will be introducing a live Job Accept feature so drivers can receive and acknowledge thier daily workload.
Being a cloud solution, operators can choose from a range of different product levels as shown in the Product Overview below. As your needs change, it is possible to adapt the system level to suit, so you only pay for those features you require.
